the Musical - Luck Of The Draw Lyrics

FATHER: (spoken)
You got your royal flush, your straight flush, four-of-a-kind;
full house, flush, straight, three-of-a-kind;
two pair, one pair, and high card least of all.
Which never hardly wins the pot.
Not when there's more'n two playin'

YOUNG VI: (spoken) What's the pot?

FATHER: (spoken) We'll get there

(sung)
First you set the ante
Say a penny
Then before the deal's begun
We both ante up our pennies –
Not too many, just the one

Let's see what your cards are –
All you got's a
Pair of Queens and nothing more
Once you bet, you get to draw some –
That's what lots'a Queens are for

A penny?
That's a pair'a Queens

A nickel?
There's the bet I saw

I'll see you. Now fate intervenes –
Some say things happen by design
By demand, decree, or law
I say most things fall in line
By the luck of the draw

A nickel is in this case
What you should bet
It's a good bet, but I win

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Papa!

FATHER: (spoken)
Three-of-a-kind. Three-of-a-kind beats two pair.
Now how much did I win from you?

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Eleven cents!

FATHER: (spoken) And 3.29 minus 11 cents is what?

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Three dollars, 18 cents

FATHER: (spoken)
First step in teaching anything is to get your student's attention.
Now, looky what ya got here:

(sung)
Six and seven
Then a nine and ten, no eight
What you do is ditch this four and
Pray to heaven for a straight

First you got to bet though
Maybe two bits
Which I raise you by a dime
See I'm forcing you to match me
By a few bits at a time

YOUNG VI: I'm winning?

FATHER: Well, a straight can win

YOUNG VI: But will it?

FATHER:
There's a famous saw
Says you can't win unless you're in –
Some say things happen by design
By demand, decree, or law
I say most things fall in line
By the luck of the draw

YOUNG VI: Let's stop this game right now, I've put enough in

FATHER: I was bluffn', but I win

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Papa!

FATHER: (spoken) Straight beats two pair. But you folded

YOUNG VI: (spoken) I don't even know the hands!

FATHER: (spoken) Violet!

(sung)
You got your royal flush, your straight flush, your four-of-a-kind
A full house, a flush, 'n' a straight, 'n' a three-of-a-kind
Two pair, one pair, and no pair at all
But high cards never won a pot, that I can recall

YOUNG VI: (spoken) What's the pot?

FATHER: (spoken) It's what you ante into

FATHER/FLICK: (spoken) Now how much did I win from you?

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Thirty-six cents!

MONTY: (spoken) Gimme a break. This is s'posed to be a friendly game, not a killing.

FATHER: (spoken) And 3.18 minus 36 cents is what?

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Gimme the cards. I'm dealing this one!

FATHER: You don't know the game yet

FLICK: That's the way it's played, brother

YOUNG VI:
I can play it
First I deal a card or two

MONTY: Flick's gonna win

YOUNG VI: Then I give you all my money

MONTY:
Clean us out
Take all our change

FATHER/FLICK: Hate to say it, but it's true

FATHER/MONTY: Guess I'll open with a nickel

YOUNG VI:
I will see that
And I'll raise you straight away

VIOLET: I'll raise you straight away

FLICK: You got some guts

YOUNG VI: Takin' candy from a baby

FATHER/FLICK: Guess I'll see ya

MEN: Who taught you to play?

FATHER: Two cards

YOUNG VI: I guess you go first?

FATHER: That's right, kid

YOUNG VI:
At your service, "Pa"
Now my card – hope my luck's reversed

YOUNG VI/VIOLET:
Some say things happen by design
By demand, decree, or law
I say most things fall in line
By the luck of the draw

MONTY: (spoken) You got to bet to win

YOUNG VI/VIOLET: Dee dee dee dee – dime

FATHER/MONTY: (spoken) See ya

FLICK: (spoken) See, and raise

MONTY: (spoken) Whose play is it?

YOUNG VI: (spoken) You watch out!

FLICK: (spoken) Must be hers

FATHER: (spoken) Whatcha get?

ALL:
Some say things happen by design
By demand, decree, or law
I say most things fall in line
By the luck of the draw

FATHER: Call

MONTY: Kings

FLICK: Straight

YOUNG VI: Flush

MONTY: By the luck of the draw

FATHER: (spoken) Baby, that is a

FATHER/VIOLET: (spoken) Royal flush

FLICK: By the luck of the draw

YOUNG VI: (spoken) Is that good?

VIOLET: By the luck of the draw

FATHER/MONTY: (spoken) I'll be damned

ALL: By the luck of the draw!
